ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday stated the federal government remained in favour of full implementation of Article 140 A of the Constitution to resolve the longstanding issues of Karachi.
“The longstanding problems of Karachi cannot be solved unless the elected local government representatives of the people of Karachi become financially, politically and administratively autonomous in the spirit of the constitution,” the prime minister stated in a declaration.
Article 140 A of the Constitution states: “Each Province shall, by law, establish a local government system and devolve political, administrative and financial responsibility, and authority to the elected representatives of the local governments.”
The prime minister directed the Chief law officer for Pakistan to demand the Supreme Court for an early hearing and disposal of the petition pending prior to the august court relating to Article 140 A.
